Catherine B. Krause is a queer, disabled, polyamorous, and transgender lunatic living in Niagara Falls, NY with her girlfriend, former metamour, three cats, and PTSD. Her work has appeared in Rabbit Ears: TV Poems (NYQ Books 2015), Beltway Poetry Quarterly, Gargoyle, Rabbit: A Journal for Non-Fiction Poetry, and The Lake, among other places. She is the recipient of the 2018 MARY Editors' Prize in Poetry.
Because none of these publishers demand exclusive rights to the poems, Catherine releases every one of her published poems into the public domain as CC Zero. Occasionally Catherine also writes prose, which is covered by the same CC Zero public domain dedication.
This book is here to make sure the public domain status of Catherine's work is clear, and is currently an unfinished collection. It is version 0.1 at the time of this writing; the finished collection will be labeled 1.0 and any corrections to the finished collection would be labeled 1.1, 1.2, etc..
In the past (2014-2016) Catherine released her work under CC-BY 4.0, but changed this to CC Zero in 2016.
